Workshop Synopsis:

The workshop will provide an introduction to basic techniques for self-defense and awareness. The student will have opportunities to participate and practice with others in a safe and supportive group environment.

Our workshop is unique. It allows participants to practice full-force self-defense on actual people. Our club members put on full protective gear and let participants really hit them. Participants see what a real life situation is like and that they have the strength to fight back.

Goals of the Workshop:

To empower women by giving them the skills to defend themselves effectively in a variety of scenarios.

Any and all women (of any age) without prior martial arts experience are welcome to come!
